Easy No-Carve Pumpkins

These no-carve pumpkins are the perfect Halloween craft for kids. They are less messy and last longer than carved pumpkins and they are so simple to make with a little paint, felt, and pipe cleaners. Use our templates to create a spider, witch, and cat pumpkin or come up with your own. No knives required!

Spider

You will need:

Paint the pumpkin black and let dry.

Use a toothpick or skewer to make 4 holes on each side for the legs.

Insert a pipe cleaner in each hole and shape into legs.

For the eyes, thread black twine through the holes of each button and secure to the back with hot glue. Use hot glue or glue dots to attach to the pumpkin.

Witch

You will need:

Witch Pattern

First, paint the pumpkin with the acrylic paint and let dry completely.

Print and cut out the pattern. Trace the pattern onto your felt and cut out.

Use hot glue to attach the ears to each side of your pumpkin.

Make the hair by cutting rectangles from black felt and cutting them into fringe. Glue around the sides and back of your pumpkin.

For the eyes, thread black twine through the holes of each button and secure to the back with hot glue. Use hot glue or glue dots to attach to the pumpkin. Attach the nose and mouth to the pumpkin using hot glue or glue dots.

To make the hat, cut a circle and a quarter circle from black felt.

Put a line of hot glue on the edge of the quarter circle and roll into a cone shape.

Trace the bottom of the cone onto the circle.

Fold the circle in half and cut across the diameter of the circle you just traced. Continue cutting across the circle to make triangle shaped pieces.

Glue the triangle pieces to the inside of the cone.

Add a strip of purple felt around the base of the hat then use hot glue to attach the hat to the top of the pumpkin.

Cat

You will need:

Cat Pattern

First, paint the pumpkin with the acrylic paint and let dry completely.

Print and cut out the pattern. Trace the pattern onto your felt and cut out.

To make the ears, glue the smaller purple ear shape to the black ear shape and then glue a toothpick or skewer to the back. Use the toothpicks to attach each ear to the top of your pumpkin.

For the eyes, thread black twine through the holes of each button and secure to the back with hot glue. Use hot glue or glue dots to attach to the pumpkin.

Cut out the mouth from white felt. Use a large needle and black twine to stitch a mouth shape on the white felt or draw on with a marker. Cut out the nose shape from purple felt and glue on top of the mouth. Use hot glue or glue dots to attach to the pumpkin.

Use a toothpick or skewer to make 3 holes on each side of the mouth. Cut black pipe cleaners in thirds and insert for the whiskers.

Glue a pipe cleaner to the back of the tail to help it stay upright. Glue to the back of the pumpkin.
